Plus Size Workout Video: 3 Minute Motivation Workout #PSPfit

Have you ever had a time when you wanted to work out, maybe you even made your way to the gym, but when you got there, you just didn’t quite have the motivation? When I get like that, I find myself kind of doing mediocre walks on the treadmill, I’ll spend a few minutes trying to find the “perfect playlist”, I’ll scroll through instagram, I’ll get some water– basically I’ll waste time in the gym because I’m over it. This happens to me a lot when I travel, even though I know how to work out on my own, without my classes sometimes I feel a bit aimless. So, I’ve been testing out this 3 minute motivation workout whenever I’m…

Plus Size Workout Video: Two Minute Plank (with Modification!)

Here’s a little #PSPfit Monday Motivation for us! I think by know we all know that holding a plank is great for a strong core. What I’ve learned is that it’s totally okay to take breaks in between your plank cycles, but you want to try to keep your abs engaged to get the most out of your planking. So for this two minute plank workout, we’ll be doing an active rest using the “downward dog” yoga pose. Try to do this every day for a week when you wake up in the morning and see how you feel! Details on my plus size workout clothes are below! Top Here | Leggings Here | Shoes Here | Yoga Mat/Gloves Here…

Thinking About a Brazilian Wax? Read This…

Summer is here so, let’s talk brazilians! I’m answering all of your questions about taking a trip to Brazil. Thinking about a brazilian wax? Read this for everything you need to know. Q.) What is a Brazilian Wax? A.) A Brazilian Wax is when you use wax to remove hair “down there”. When you get a brazilian, they remove everything from the front to the back (Yes, “the back”!) Q.) Will I be charged more because of my body type? or how much hair I have? A.) Nope. A big girl should not be charged more for a Brazilian wax. My Aestetician says that rates are based on the type of work (i.e. legs, bikini line, full brazilian) not the…

Free Workout Videos: How to Get Fit with Bad Knees!

I get emails every week asking for tips on how to work out with “bad knees”. There are lots of jumping jacks, lunges and squats in my plus size workout videos, but I totally understand that not everyone can do those things. To be honest, I wasn’t always able to do those things! When my weight was higher, I often had sore joints that made certain exercises uncomfortable for me. >>>Click Here for How to Get Fit with Bad Knees Having weak or sore knees might get in the way of our health goals, but I never want you girls to feel discouraged. In my experience there are modifications for almost everything!! When I modified my workouts, I was still able to get…

Don’t Wait On Your Weight To Live Your Life

As a plus-size girl, there have been so many things I’ve put on hold, telling myself that they should happen “next year” after I’d lost some weight. But then, “next year” came and went, and my weight barely budged. Eventually, I asked myself: If I never lose weight, will I never live the amazing life I want? Putting my entire life on hold until I looked a certain way sounded like a crazy idea, so I decided against it and born was my motto “Don’t Wait On Your Weight.” I looked closely at my fear of embarrassment and rejection, issues that that kept me from trying new things and living life to the fullest. I realized that I was rejecting experiences as a defense…
